Edmonds’ Waterfront Coffee Co. unveiled the Little Free Library about the size of an old tube TV.

The concept of the “library” is simple: If you like a book, take it, and put one back. The concept started in Wisconsin and has picked up steam after being profiled in USA Today and on NPR and NBC Nightly News With Brian Williams. “I came up with the idea after watching Brian Williams on the news,” said Waterfront Coffee Co. owner Steve Balas. “I wanted to do something for the community and to bring people down to the waterfront.” The Edmonds Little Free Library is the first in Washington state and No. 858 in the world, said Balas, who built the library himself. The goal is to break Andrew Carnegie’s record of creating more than 2,500 libraries, according to the Little Free Library Web site. Since the idea is to incorporate the history of a community into the library, Balas decided to tip his cap to Edmonds’ history of shingle mills. Balas looked at historical photographs and went to work. The completed library, called “Cedar Shingles Mills of the 1800s,” features wood shingle, a class cover and black smokestack. It sits on a post. Copy provided by Edmonds Patch. This has been 365 things to do Edmonds, WA – See you next time and remember….It’s an Edmonds kind of day.
